It's Puddle Time

For the last year that we have lived in Madera, Ca. We have never seen it rain like we have the last several days. We have had one storm after another. And as many of you know, when you have alittle one, the rainy days are not always fun. Christopher just got new boots, so we were able to break them in when the rain let up and the sky's cleared. He loves to get out and jump, jump, jump. We go puddle jumping on Rainy Days.

Project 365

Hello all my blog spot friends. The Ramirez Family is starting a 365 Project. I will still update this blog with all our fun outing, trips and etc.
The new blog will be a journal of our everyday life. Whether away on a fun trip or at home staring at the walls. LOL i hope this next year the Ramirez Family can keep you entertained.

When The Clock Strikes Midnight......

New Years Eve is always a time to celebrate the memories from the past and to start making memories for the future. And when the clock strikes midnight it is time to start reflecting the things in our life we want and need to change. And most importantly following through with the changes that we have set forth. 2009 was a hard year for me. We have just moved back to California a couple months before the year started. And we had moved to a new town in January of 09. It had seemed our life was starting over. Friends and Family moved in and out of our lives. Relationships changed. People's healths were not so good. As i ended 2009 and begin a new year i would like to start out with a quote.

We will open a book.
It pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book will be called "opportunity"
And its first Chapter is called, The New Year.

My 2010 resolutions but not in any order....
  1. Spend more time with family & friends: Jaime and I both enjoy our time with both family and friends. But i think we have realized that sometimes we take time with them for granted. Taking time out of our busy lives, and doing something with them will be important to us. Having weekly or monthly dinners. Even if it means traveling or having a houseful.
  2. Get organized: since this summer i have been unorganized. Making weekly and monthly to do list for myself, and stick to it. De-clutter, let go of things that i don't need, and hold on to the memories that i want.
  3. Be fit and stay fit: I do think I'm fit now. But making lifestyle changes that suit both me and my family. Eating foods that are good for our body, jogging more, entering in more races. Getting our family to enjoy exercise together.
  4. Help Others: since i have joined MomsClub and my mother has been sick. I have started reaching out to people in need. I hope to volunteer more, attend more events, and help raise money.
  5. Enjoy Life: Sometimes we sit back and watch others, and wish we were doing things. Get out and try something new. enjoy life means making yourself happy. and the others around me happy. Take the easy road sometimes and just chill. Whatever you are chasing will still be there. All road traveled, and traveled well. Sometimes we take a wrong turn, but we will all end up back where we need.
  6. Blog More: I would like to blog about more things going on around, my family, friends, and my feeling. Use my blog as a way to express how i feel and to display my family memories
  7. Craft More: Sometimes i start projects and then forget about them. This year i want to make all my gifts throughout the year. And about 75% of my Christmas gifts
  8. Be a Better Person: I overall believe I'm a great person. Sometimes i can be selfish. I only think of myself in a situation. I need to give more to others in the sense that relationships go 2 ways. All lives are important and we all need to see that.
  9. Take a step back: I can not save the world alone. I need help from others. I need to start taking a step back and realizing their are others who can help to.

New Years Eve

New Years Eve 2009: A night for being with Old Friends & New Ones..... Me and Jaime both enjoyed NYE, this year. It has been a long time since we have been able to spend the evening with our old friends. We are looking forward to 2010 in hopes that friendship will mean as much as they used to and new friends will be a joy to have in our lives.
some people come into our lives and quickly go.
some stay for awhile, leaving footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same again...
